Knitted Christmas Booties, Stitchcraft December 1944

Hold onto your hats - these booties are a tad psychedelic!





Lets blame wool rationing, shall we?

These Christmas booties would make a fabulous present for someone - not to mention a great way to use up remnants of yarn.

You'll need oddments of fingering weight yarn, 4mm needles and some leather for the soles and ties.

(For size reference, the heel piece measures 6cm high along the fold line)

I think they're very charming. They look a bit like a ghillie dance shoe crossed with a high top sneaker, only far more comfy than either of those.

I'm very tempted to give them a try - in different colours of course!
